garbage collectors are on strike across the city

A Marseille (Bouches-du-Rhône), in a downtown district, you have to cross the street to avoid the garbage that overflows on the sidewalk. Garbage cans are no longer collected there. A collection strike began Thursday, September 23 in some boroughs before spreading in the evening of Monday 27 to the entire metropolis. The collection agents are protesting against the working time reform. They worked until now, according to a report of the regional chamber of accounts, between 3 am and 3:30 am, six days a week. From January, the metropolis must increase the time of 2 hours per day. According to the FO union, this would amount to working 28 more days each year, for an unchanged salary.

The five trade unions have been received in the metropolis. The community claims to stick to the law: “The room for maneuver is the law. (…) Then, we will see how it evolves, if there is a national strike, what the State will tell us”, replies Roland Mouren, vice-president (LR) of the Aix-Marseille-Provence in charge of waste treatment.
